The new build is all done and together. Was actually able to get some wire management done as well. Enjoy!

Here is the storage count so far (there is one more 3TB drive not in yet):

The storage is necessary for all my games that never get played. :(

Half-assedly redid my network shelf. Woot!

Now I'll work on overclocking and tweaking the settings and I'll post some runs and specs of that once it's complete. 

 

Monitor Arrangement for just this rig (I just build desks out of random scrap lumber around my house - it works):

LOL. I don't own a camera.....just my phone which doesn't have a mechanical shutter. Very hard to get good photos out of it.

Very nice looking rig! Gives me inspiration for my new rig to come (by end of the year, hopefully).

What are the specs of the new rig (aside from the video card), and what video settings are you running with the 470?

With the 470 I can run BF3 on ultra at 45 FPS which I am fine with. It doesn't go below there, so it works out pretty well. I can record at that rate too, which is surprising....I'm running 1920x1080 on one monitor and 1080x1920 on the other for coding.

I have two velociraptors in RAID0 as storage (SSD's still just a tad too pricey for me and these were brought from my old rig).
Maximus IV Gene-z motherboad (RoG Edition)
Intel 2700K Processor
16GB Dual Channel Corsair 1600 (9 CAS - Vengeance LP)
LG Blu-ray burner.
H80 cooling on the chip.
Creative X-Fi Titanium
Thermaltake 850 Black Window PSU (Modular)
R.A.T. 7 Mouse
G960 Logitech Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound Headphones

Added a 64GB SSD Corsair that I got for free to my setup and configured to be Caching. Load times are pretty damn quick now. Not too shabby.

Thanks guys. Got the SSD's running. It's stupid fast. It's absolutely amazing. I installed Office 2010 from an ISO. Didn't even see the loading bar for the installation..... :D
